4 hours at a normal shop???? My shop does a full set in under an hour

Well I did have 2 cars to do, and I will say its been a couple years since I have gotten tires, but it always seemed to take way to long.

Maybe there are better now or I don't have the hookup.

YMMV

Did a couple of mods

- M4-style CF spoiler.
- Red start-stop button.
- AK-Motion display

All in all i think i increased the amount of HP with +50 with just the button and the spoiler.

The display is very cool though.

Moved to Stage 1 91 from the ACN 91, and did the full Thor GTS flash for the DCT, diff, etc.

I started with the first level (road and track?) and found it to have neutered the car, especially in sport where it would prioritize upshifting far too much. GTS seems much better, and the data logs look great with 91 from 76, with about 5oz of Boostane premium in the tank.

It's just a badge. Remove the foam insulation pad & unfold the tabs that hold the badge on.
